A boy went missing a couple of weeks ago, running from police and gang related drug violence.
The Sheriff’s Department made a grisly discovery of a boy’s body in a remote city park in the East County Saturday. Authorities have not released the name of the victim due to an ongoing investigation, they did release some details, however, and believe it may be the 14yr.old gone missing two weeks earlier.
The police were looking for the boy to take him into protective custody, an alleged drug dealer and documented gang member. Rival gangs and dealers were reportedly looking for the suspect with plans to murder him. His aunt, whom he had stayed with from time to time, notified authorities of the death threats, hoping to be able to protect him. He was afraid to go to jail because he feared a rival or even a fellow gang member might make an attempt on his life; assuming he was in custody to turn evidence, so he decided to run on the street.

The confusion was weather or not this was the work of a serial killer or a gang hit. The overwhelming evidence and cruel demeanor of the crime pointed to a homicidal maniac, not a gang execution.
The gruesome scene was discovered by two boys riding BMX bikes down to the little used park.
They smelled an horrific stench coming from two green trash bags, surrounded by ant trails and maggots next to a Parks and Recreation Department trash can, about twenty yards from a bloody picnic table
They also found various cordless power tools, a potato/carrot slicer, a short handled 12 pound sledge hammer, a hand rip saw, and other items.
An autopsy revealed evidence of a sexual assault, due to a latex condom lubricant in the child’s anus. The deputies that responded to the sight both became very ill.
In one of the bags was the ankles and feet, severed from the rest of the leg, verified by the coroner that this occurred when the child was still alive, with the hand saw. Dr. John Casey also verified three sections (on each leg) had been severed and cauterized one at a time and sawed with a cordless power saw. The saw was not found.
Inside the other bag was the remains of the remains of the horribly disfigured boy. The legs had the skin peeled off from the top of the legs to the knees where the last cuts had been made. Cat litter and salt had been poured on and scraped into the wounds. His spine was snapped in half at the eleventh vertebrae.
The right jaw had been broken in two places, and several teeth had become lodged in the throat. The left side of the face was fractured and crushed and a rusted Buck knife had been forced and beaten through the left eyeball and forced into the eye socked, cracking it. An ice pick had been pushed into the right eye socket, but the eyeball had been plucked out and was hanging by the optical nerve on the outside of the face.
There was also a screwdriver lodged into the top of the skull, and the carotid artery
and the neck bone were severed also. The only thing holding the head to the body was a thick patch of skin on the back of the neck.
The victims mouth had been duct taped closed, perhaps muffling the screams. Also at the scene was a Craftsman
heavy duty model 1347 5/8” drill motor with a half inch bit in it matching puncture holes in the victims chest,
puncturing both lungs. Authorities are still combing the scene and surrounding area for any more possible clues, and have warned the public a maniac may be about.
The only fingerprints found at the scene matched that of the victim. Deputies are on full alert but have no idea who or what they might be looking for.
Thank you Sandahl Bergman - Man it was a long time ago. Maybe the early 80s? Yeah that sounds right so let's go with it. It was the wary 80s, I was maybe 13 or 14, give or take. Whate...
